Earlier in the week I posted on Cupertino Patch's Facebook page a request for favorite stuffing recipes. I got two responses and thought I'd share them with you here.
The first is from Pam Marino, who is also a Patch contributor and has her own website, Good Neighbor Stories (check it out—it's the best place to go when you get tired of reading about crime and other bad things in the world); and the second recipe comes from Patch contributor The Green Beanie, and you can watch her prepare her recipe in the attached YouTube video.
From Pam Marino:
This one from my mom is simple, but I love it:
- 1 loaf white bread, cut into cubes and lightly toasted in the oven (or one package unseasoned croutons)
- 1/2 pound butter (see why I love it?)
- 1 minced onion
- 1 cup diced celery
- chopped parsley
- 1/2 tsp poultry seasoning
- 1/2 tsp sage
- a little thyme
- salt and pepper to taste
Melt the butter in a large pan. Sauté the onion, celery, herbs, and seasonings, until the vegetables are golden brown. Pour over the cubed bread and mix well.
Pack into a baking dish, cover with foil, and bake in the oven. Add a little stock to the dressing if you prefer it to be more moist. Remove the foil and let the top brown, if you like some crunchiness.
